Hi Peter!

Thank you very much for your advice. Now I've decided to buy Mr. Hensley dulcimer(from USA), but I'll take in mind this seller from UK. On his site he write that shipping costs are 'for main UK', but I think that it's possible to talk about shipping to Belarus too.

as some of my instruments are now over 40 years old i am taking an interest in where they are and if they are still alive, would love to know more!

Hello Peter, I'm still trying to play, but not much time, between the lutes and ukes...

I tried some fluorocarbon strings, that's nice on the dulcimer, but not a very loud sound, so I'm thinking about going back to metal, but looking for low tension (fragile finger tips...)

;-)

Hello Peter, I just discovered your comment - the one you left over a month ago! I haven't quite got the hang of navigating this site, sorry. How was the weekend in Allendale? Will it take place again next year? I'm hoping to have learned a lot by then. Are there any plans for the Scottish dulcimer players to get together?

Nancy

Hi Peter, After reading your profile I'm curious if you play any other instrument(s)? As a rank beginner I always feel quite ignorant when talking to people here. But - your profile mentioned determination - I am also determined to persevere. Having said that, I was gutted when I broke a string this week (I'm still trying to learn to tune properly) especially as I didn't know how to replace it and didn't have a spare anyway. Now it's sorted and I just need to have another go at tuning. ("Just"??Frown.gif) Someone mentioned you playing in France: where will that be? We love France and often go there on holiday. I lived there for a while and thanks to my French I got my dream job here, as an interpreter. (I'm retired now, hence the time to learn the dulcimer!) Maybe see you in Allendale!

That is such a clever idea. No wonder it sounds so great. H

Thanks for the links Peter. I love the epinette and the others are really interesting too. A bit expensive for my budget. I see the frets, unlike a dulcimer , are evenly spaced. Does this give u more notes to play with as in other chromatic keyboards? I love the full six string sound. Very very interesting. Ta Helen.

A question for you Peter...what price do epinettes start at? I watched a couple being played on youtube this morning. Ta Helen

Outstanding effort Peter!! Wow, playing in those fabulous old churches - I am so jealous. That would be wonderful. Thank you so much for letting me know how you got on. I am preparing for next local market in ten days. Learning some new songs from Stephen Seifert's Join the Jam in DAd. It is a book of 73 songs with 3 cds on which he plays each song slowly so u can join in, learn the tune then speed it up as you practice. He has a DAA version too. I am off to buy a small marquee today so I can keep myself dry and out of the heat at the market. We have crazy weather down where I am. (About a two hour drive west of Melbourne). So where are you playing next? Cheers Helen

I hope you do play in France Peter. The setting sounds devine. Be brave and please let me know how you go. I found starting with the two songs I new really well helped with nerves.

Gadday Peter. Thank you for your encouragement. I really like the idea of not being the centre of attention at the market. But I do hope people will be curious enough to ask a question or two. Peebles is a sweet name for a town. I used to live in a little place called Snake Valley...an old mining town (well, old by Aussie history)...yep, there was the odd snake but no-more really than most of country Oz. You just learn not to surprise or stir them up. Happy strumming! Helen

Hi Peter,Of course i dont mind your curiosity. As for now i haven't specialized myself in a specific area. But my favorite period is the Migration period/early Middle Ages. Nice to hear that you are an archaeologist as well. In about half a year i will be done with my study and will start working. I'm really looking forward to it!Thank you for the comment!Patrick
